Hundreds of RNs to Protest CPMC Friday
Date:9/25/2008

Only CPMC and St. Luke's Remain Without Contracts Among Sutter Facilities,

Undermining Patient Safety

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds of RNs in scrubs will protest Friday outside the offices of California Pacific Medical Center over the chain's refusal to address the very same contract issues that eight other Sutter Health facilities in the Bay Area have agreed to.

CPMC and St. Luke's RNs continue to work without a contract, and continue to work without patient safety protections, such as providing adequate coverage to allow for meal and rest breaks, and without the kind of fair agreements on secure healthcare benefits and pension enhancements that translate into nurse recruitment and retention.

CPMC and St. Luke's RNs were among more than 4,000 Bay Area nurses who fought with Sutter Health for a new over the course of a year that included three different strikes. In recent weeks, the majority of Sutter facilities have moved to agreements with their nurses, leaving only CPMC and St. Luke's as holdouts.

WHAT: Hundreds of RNs in Scrubs Protest CPMC/St. Luke's Lack of Contract

WHEN: Friday, Sept. 26, 4 p.m.

WHERE: CPMC-California Campus Front Entrance, 3700 California St., SF

"Unlike the other Sutter facilities, CPMC and St. Luke's have been hostile, resistant, and punitive towards their nurses. They are undermining patient care and disrespecting the RNs who care for so many San Franciscans. It's time for CPMC to get serious about these issues and allow everyone to return to our focus on patient safety," said Jane Sandoval, an RN at St. Luke's.

More than 4000 CNA RNs at 10 Sutter hospitals have been in bargaining. These include: St. Luke's Hospital and California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, San Leandro Hospital, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley and Oakland (including Caregivers and Healthcare Employees Union members), Mills-Peninsula Health Services in Burlingame and San Mateo, Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, Sutter Delta in Antioch, Sutter Solano in Vallejo, Marin General, and Novato Community Hospital.

Representing 80,000 RNs in 50 states, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee is the largest and fastest-growing association of direct-care RNs in the nation. Learn more at http://www.calnurses.org.
